Why the Experience API (xAPI) Is Crucial to Your eLearning Success

Trivantis

xAPI was created by Rustici Software to replace SCORM (an earlier set of technical standards for eLearning software products). The ADL —or Advanced Distributed Learning—recognized the need for a set of standards to ensure that programmers write code that can play well with other eLearning software. Years later, when SCORM couldn’t do everything needed, the ADL asked Rustici Software to create an updated standard: The Experience API or xAPI.

Consider the internet; developments on top of the TCP/IP protocol like SMTP and HTML allowed a variety of tools to work together to bring us email and the world wide web.

Sign #2: There is no certification process for tools and packages for the latest SCORM 2004 4 th edition. Sign #3: ADL itself heavily supports Tin Can as the successor of SCORM.[4]. For example, many rapid elearning tools that are available for creating courses DO NOT allow you to build anything easily other than basic SCORM 2004. Content authors should be able to rely on a consistent set of UI expectations. Nothing is perfect though as ADL admits [5].
